Endangered Species formed in 1997 and within a few months released an EP entitled, "Foreshadow". Foreshadow recieved excellent response, "These guys rock!" --Blair Patton, C103FM, Moncton NB; "Armageddonic rockers...bottom line, this must be one hell of a band to catch live!" --Greg Perry, writer/columnist, Times Transcript, Moncton NB.
In 1998, the band regrouped and acquired the services of vocalist Randi Porter, and keyboardist Graeme McCausland. The change of lineup was necessary to reflect the direction that the band wanted to take going into the 21st century. Over thirty tunes were written within the year that followed and a dozen were chosen to go on the upcoming release. Their ability to write that much quality material in such a short period of time is a testament to the song writing talent of every member of Endangered Species.
The band has completed recording of their first full length album entitled, "Colours Among the Blind" and will be released this January. MP3 samples are available at this web site now. The band will be touring this spring to promote this latest release. Endangered Species also has plans for a concept album to be released next year entitled, "Shame of Kaine".
From thought-provoking lyrics, classical breaks, soundtrack landscapes; to in-your-face double-bass riffs, the versatility and intensity of Endangered Species is quite a specticle to witness. If this all sounds good to you, buy the new album, then e-mail us and tell us what you think.
